in their sights. with me at the table is steve kornacki, the host of the cycle and senior writer for salon.com. sigh yu is the founding director of new american leaders project. a national organization for specifically focused on preparing first and second general immigrants. >> robert traynham, an msnbc contributor. chloe angel, a director of -- i'm going to stop talking. what do you think is going to happen on thursday night, steve? >> i think joe biden gets a bad wrap as a politician, as a communicator and as a debater. i'm not sure when exactly it started, but sometime in the last five years. this caricature of biden as everyone's crazy uncle. it's a gaffe a minute. you never know what crazy thing he's going to say next. i think he is a skilled communicator. i think he's a strong debater. the reason he ended up on obama's ticket was because of the democratic primary debates in 2007, 2008. we forget that biden ran for president. how many debates did we step away, it's hillary, it's obama. but joe biden won this debate. i wrote that column four or five times in 2007, 2008. think way back

should you just believe it and buy? senior economics reporter steve liesman joins us. do we believe it? >> should you trade this number? here's a quick bottom line. the skbloorkjobs market is like as strong. the big drop in unemployment. not as weak as the 114,000 jobs shown in the payroll. let me walk you through why you come to this conclusion. the payroll surveyed showed 114,000 jobs created. the work week increased a little bit, average hourly earnings were up and year-to-date, remember that figure of 1.31 million. write that down we'll come back to it. household survey, 873,000 jobs, but of that 582,000 were part time for economic reasons. that's not a flattering way to bet to the problem. it's like going in one of those, i don't know, an '84 pinto. that's not a nice way to get to the problem. there's a payroll adjusted concept. what we do is because they count jobs in different ways there's a thing called a payroll adjusted in this. what's the number? 1.34 million. what's number i asked you to write down? 1.31 million. year-to-date not a whole lot of difference. bottom line is i

competence. that's part of the bigger narrative the romney campaign has to drive. >> steve, there has been at least according to the politico argument a disagreement within the campaign whether libya is off topic or they should stick to the economic message. polls have shown movement towards mitt romney on foreign policy. to the larger question, does this go to competence? >> i think every day the romney campaign is talking about something other than the economy is probably a bad day for them. i think it's a sign of their desperation they have to make politics out of what was a terrible tragedy. and i think the obama administration has a lot of good things on foreign policy to talk about. he's president of the united states. i think, you know, the situation was unfortunately and all the information sometimes doesn't come out as timely as people would like because it's the fog of war. but i think people have great confidence in barack obama's abilities on foreign policy and how he's managed difficult situations overseas. >> john, as mitt romney has said president obama didn't level with ame

're not going to see -- karl rove, steve schmidt said you're not going to see a huge swing in the polls, maybe one or two points. it's the first of four debates, but it is a great start for mitt romney. but we remember back in 2004, george w. bush got obliterated by john kerry in the first debate. it was one of the worst performances in a debate i've ever seen. remember he asked for the extra time? then he'd just look in the camera and go, it's hard. it's hard. and yet he still won. this is not -- this keeps the game going, right? >> it do. i think -- i kept thinking about mark twain. the rumors of romney's political death were greatly exaggerated, but twain still died. >> well, there is that. god. thank you this morning for that insight. >> can we go to breaking news or a developing banner on that one? mark twain, dead. >> still dead. >> still dead. >> but i thought it was as -- i think '04 -- >> you know, he's funnier in central time zone. i'm sorry, go ahead. >> on something. >> you should see the stat yuue they have of willie geist down here. >> it's huge. >> i'm going to cite my -- the pe

while we let the republicans what they're doing to our country continue. we have a great leader, steve israel, chairman of our committee very analytical and very strong and scientific as to how we go forward. it's mostly about the vision for our country. >> you believe, correct me if i'm wrong, that paul ryan being added to the republican ticket has helped you in trying to gain seats, is that right? >> mark your calendar, august 11th, the day he was chosen gave a clarification to the issue of medicare. this is a person who has been the destroyer of medicare guarantee. >> he wants to save it he says. >> wither on the vine. he wants it to wither on the vine. which is the language the republicans used when they're not on tv. but here's the thing, the six times do-nothing republican congress which refused to pass a jobs bill or i've said some of the other bills earlier has taken the time for six times to sever the medicare guarantee. by naming romney the spotlight move to that for 16 months we had been saying -- previous to that, we've been saying to members the most important issues in al
